Doctor Recommended Hormone Normalizing Solution For Reducing Female Hair Loss, Acne, Oily Skin and Excess Facial Hair
Dr. A. Pettle, MD F.R.C.S. (OBS GYN)
Hair loss is almost always thought of as a male problem. But hair loss is also a problem for many women in my practice faced with improperly balanced hormones. A common cause of hair loss in women is the conversion of testosterone into DHT. Just as saw palmetto can address this hormone conversion in men, it is also the most promising solution for women with hair loss. One double-blind study found that 60% of men suffering from baldness involving the conversion of testosterone into DHT improved on saw palmetto berry and beta-sitosterol .
Saw palmetto may also help women suffering from excessive facial and body hair that is also caused by excessive male hormones. Excess facial and body hair is often a symptom of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is associated with elevated levels of male hormones. Saw palmetto, because of its ability to reduce male hormones, has an extensive history of clinical use for PCOS.
Another common symptom of PCOS is acne. People with acne often have more activity of 5-alpha-redctase in their skin. That is the enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT. Again, saw palmetto can help to reduce DHT and the resulting symptom of acne.
The chastetree berry found in Saw Palmetto Plus is an important addition for PCOS, excess facial and body hair as well as acne. It is the best herb for normalizing hormones by raising progesterone while lowering estrogen and prolactin. PCOS is characterized by low progesterone and elevated prolactin. Chastetree berry is also effective for teenage acne and the acne of PMS.
The zinc in Saw Palmetto Plus is an important nutrient for hair loss. And it is crucial for acne, partly because imbalances of testosterone can cause acne, and zinc helps regulate testosterone levels. Several double-blind studies prove that zinc helps treat acne.
I recommend Saw Palmetto Plus to patients in my practice to normalize hormones for reduction in hair loss, acne, oily skin, excess facial and body hair and more! It is also useful in relieving PMS and the symptoms of menopause including hot flashes.
